Goalsetting And Why You Should Set Goals.

A great life doesn't just happen. A great life isn't something that will just happen to you out of the blues, by default, one day, whilst living a mundane, mediocre life, you, suddenly, stumble into purpose, stumble into excellence, stumble into meaning. Life doesn't work like that. A great life doesn't happen by default but by Design. A great life happens by DESIGN.

You have to DESIGN the life you want to have, to make a plan about what you want to have in your life. I remember hearing Brian Tracy say once that people make a plan for every other thing they need to get done- we make a detailed plan and design when we want to build a house, with the help of an architect, and then we build according to the laid out design, even when we want to cook, we make a plan, a list of the ingredients we need- and if you are not a list person, at least you make a mental plan, we have a mental picture of what the outcome of putting all of these ingredients together would be- we even have a mental picture of how it will taste BEFORE we cook. But when it comes to our lives, we just "go with the flow, and just wait to see how life goes". That's setting oneself up for a life of mediocrity, mundanity and meaninglessness. A set up for a life of dissatisfaction, full of the pain of confusion and lack of clarity. 

The Real Christmas Message.


This was a letter I wrote to my neighbors yesterday but I thought I share this message here as well for all of my online neighbors who aren’t believers yet or who are Christians but who don’t really have a clear understanding of what the gospel is and what Jesus really came to do for us. Please read and be blessed and Merry Christmas to you and yours ❤️🙏🏾


Hello There,

I hope you are well and that you have the love and comfort of family in this season. 

As we draw near to Christmas Day tomorrow, I feel compelled by God to write to you. You see, I’ve probably not been the best neighbor- not only because my natural tendencies are to keep to myself but mainly, to me, because I’ve never reached out to you with the good news of Jesus Christ.

I do have a reason I haven’t done this. I have often looked at my own life and thought, “well, I don’t have it all together. I lost my cool this day or that day and I haven’t exactly been living like a pious Christian as my crazy can tend to come out now and again”, until recently when God started impressing it in my heart that He hasn’t called me to be pious and churchy- that’s being religious and that’s not having a relationship with Him as my father. I don’t need to have it “all together” to tell others about Him and to show them the freedom, peace and joy He has brought me- I just need to do it and also trust that He loves me- with all of my imperfections- and He will gradually chisel away all the rough bits in my soul, my personality etc until I look just like Him, a personality full of Love because God is Love.
